Heart disease affects approximately 12 percent of the North American population. What's more, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, statistics show that it is the number one killer disease within the nation.
Statistics from the American Heart Association show that 5.7 million men and women in North America suffer from heart failure every year.
Nevertheless, with continual medical improvements, more and more heart patients and people with heart problems have faster recovery times and survive far longer than in previous times. However, unsurprisingly insurance companies still view heart patients as a high risk category.

Regardless of anything, should you have a family, you really ought to protect your family’s future financial needs first.
